Anastasia Beverly Hills has an absolutely gorgeous (aka STUNNING, PERFECT) release coming at us with their NEW Norvina collab launching Tuesday, 7.17! Our loyal readers will know that we are absolute suckers for ABH eyeshadow palettes – Modern Renaissance being our favorite & the Soft Glam palette was amazing! – so you just know we are SO SO SO excited about this one! The palette features 14 shades with a perfect balance of shimmers and mattes. Also included in the launch is a new Liquid Lipstick. The palette will undoubtedly be $42 and everything will initially be available at ABH’s website, then at Ulta on the 29th and Sephora on August 7th.
We have to be honest – at first glance, we weren’t that excited abut this. It doesn’t take your breath away instantly, right? But once you actually look at it, you start to realize that you definitely need this in your life! Or, at least that’s what happened to me. I will say, I’m getting Lorac Pro Palette vibes with the whole top row being shimmer and whole bottom row being mattes thing and TBH, I’m not crazy about that type of layout for some reason. I think I’d love for it to be distributed differently. But I am loving ALL of the shimmer shades this palette has to offer! They are so cohesive yet different enough to warrant each and every one. I don’t mind the mattes, but i sort of think we could have switched them up just a little.. like, why don’t we have a nice deep plum or like purpley deep brown? Instead, we have a warm orange and a maroon that don’t necessary need to be there. Couldn’t we have run with the purple theme just a liiiiiiiittle bit more?? That is my only gripe. Does the exterior beautiful lavender packaging nearly make up for it?? Yes! But not totally. Either way, you already know we’re picking this baby up ASAP.
